The Good: Geometry is dialed and it's chromoly is all you need to know for now...BAM it rocks
The Bad: Rigid is gonna hurt a bit at first But you'll be grateful for what it shows you later.
Ok I'm riding a XC bike for the fall and winter portion of this year. I chose the Unit because of its geometry and because its chromoly. Yes it takes a little more effort and thought to get to the top of the hill but it changes the way you attack the hill and helps you realize that you can pound out anything if you have to.
